This is a newly renovated hotel just a few blocks from Paddington Station and Edgware Road Stations. Staff is very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are small but clean, the baths are narrow and tiny but ours looked to be newly redone. Our room was in the back and it was extremely quiet. The breakfast is (like every review says) "odd". It is a cornflakes or bran flakes cereal, hard boiled egg, some ham-type slices, cheese slices and a strange faux-juice. (Imagine a cross between Sunny Delight and Gatorade). If you are not into big English breakfast and just want a clean, safe, friendly place near metro, this is good. NOTE: Edgware Road itself is now a middle Eastern mecca, so the restaurants are lined with people blowing hookah smoke everywhere at their cafe tables (yuk). So if you want to avoid it, just check the map and circumvent that route. We didn't discover that til the fourth day, and this would have been a good tip. Also, no wi-fi in the room, just sit in the lobby, and you only get one key per room (which you are supposed to leave with the desk). Was not an issue for us, but if you are group that splits up a lot, it could be a problem because the room key controls all the lights.
